Bee'ah to make its presence felt at WFES 2014
This year marks the fourth time Bee'ah has participated in the event
In line with its mission to spearhead environmental change across the Middle East, Bee’ah, a leading provider of integrated environmental and waste management solutions, will participate in the World Future Energy Summit (WFES) 2014, held under the theme ‘Powering the Future of Energy Innovation and Investment’.
This will mark the fourth time that the company has taken part in the event, a world-renowned meeting dedicated to renewable energies, energy efficiency and clean technologies that runs this year from 20-22 January at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre.
The summit aims to provide an engaging platform for international manufacturers of environment technology, government representatives, academics and industry experts to discuss different ways to incorporate new and cutting-edge innovations into their business operations.
At WFES 2014, Bee’ah will showcase its many achievements to date and shed light on its journey towards achieving zero-waste to landfill in Sharjah by 2015, in line with the vision of H.H. Sheikh Dr. Sultan Bin Mohammed Al Qassimi, member of the Supreme Council of the UAE and Ruler of Sharjah.
This goal was established as part of the Sharjah-based company’s new mandate which calls for the application of international best practices in environmental and waste management throughout the Emirate. Meeting this target will catapult the Emirate into being the ‘Environmental Capital of the Middle East,’ making it the first Arab city ever to divert 100% of its waste from landfill.
“We are thrilled to be taking part in WFES, a world-class exhibition that connects industry pioneers, all working together to provide practical and sustainable solutions to future energy challenges,” said H.E. Salim bin Mohamed Al Owais, chairman, Bee’ah.
“As the Middle East’s leading and award winning integrated environmental and waste management company, we, at Bee’ah, have long believed in the power of knowledge and awareness,” Al Owais said. “WFES is a strong vehicle for action, bringing together key environmental stakeholders in Abu Dhabi to address critical matters related to sustainability in the UAE.”
Khaled Al Huraimel, Group CEO, Bee’ah, echoed that statement, saying: “Through our participation, we look forward to tackling issues related to waste management, environmental services, environmental awareness and education here in the Middle East.”
“At the summit, we will also be delving deep into the subject of landfill diversion, a topic that has now become synonymous with the Bee’ah name,” Al Huraimel added.
In the past five years, the company’s objectives have focused on resource recovery, allowing it to achieve a remarkably high landfill diversion rate. Today, Bee’ah has taken this approach one step further, focusing its efforts on treating waste and converting it into useful material, a strategy that further cements its commitment to achieving zero-waste to landfill by 2015.
